Since physical deterioration along with mental and social changes found in the elderlies, they are also classifies as an underprivileged group in receiving direct and indirect health information as well as lack opportunity to access social welfare and health care services. Although the Thai Ministry of Public Health recognizes the significance in promoting health literacy for all ages and establishes an obvious action plan, previous studies found that Thai elderly had inadequate level of health literacy, especially health cognition, health communication, and health information and health services accessibility. Despite the elderly has good level of decision-making and discrimination skills, inadequate health information received including lack of health communication skill may result in error of self-care decisions. To promote health literacy in aging population through creating health cognition via effective communication and age-friendly environment will assist them to be self-reliant, reduce dependency, and be able to continue living life based on their own potentials.</p> วิมลรัตน์ บุญเสถียร, อรทัย เหรียญทิพยะสกุล ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-nd/4.0 https://rsujournals.rsu.ac.th/index.php/ajnh/article/view/1548 Tue, 31 Mar 2020 05:35:10 SE Asia Daylight Time Banana Health Benefits https://rsujournals.rsu.ac.th/index.php/ajnh/article/view/1305 <p>This article aimed to describe how banana could be benefit for holistic healthcare in a perspective of Thai wisdom.

Data were analyzed by descriptive statistics and Spearman’s rank correlation coefficient.</p> <p>The study finding showed that sample’s perception of stroke risk factors, perception of stroke warning signs and stroke prevention management were at high levels, while stroke warning signs management was at a moderate level. Correlation analysis found that perception of stroke risk factors was significantly related to stroke prevention management (r = 0.383, p &lt; .001) and perception of stroke warning signs was significantly related to stroke warning signs management (r = 0.224, p &lt; .001).</p> <p>The research result suggests that&nbsp; health personnel should emphasize on providing information regarding stroke warning signs and stroke warning signs management for persons at risk of stroke so that that they will manage them well and be able to prevent disability.</p> อาณัติ วรรณะ, นิภา กิมสูงเนิน, รัชนี นามจันทรา ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-nd/4.0 https://rsujournals.rsu.ac.th/index.php/ajnh/article/view/1250 Fri, 24 Apr 2020 11:47:46 SE Asia Daylight Time The Effectiveness of Shift Report Management through SBAR Model of Professional Nurses in a Private Hospital https://rsujournals.rsu.ac.th/index.php/ajnh/article/view/1466 <p>Change-of-shift report, as a part of nursing communication, plays a vital role in patient care planning. Sender and receiver should convey positive attitude to each other. The message sent must concern information regarding treatment and nursing care of the patients. Effective change-of-shift report would enhance continuity of care and patient safety. This quasi-experimental one group pretest-posttest design aimed to examine the effectiveness of shift report management through SBAR model of nurses in private hospital. SBAR was used as a conceptual framework. A sample of 30 nurses who worked in the Intensive Care Unit, surgical ward, and medical ward was recruited. Data were collected by shift report through SBAR questionnaires from August to September, 2019 and were analyzed by t-test.</p> <p>The results show that the average sum score of accuracy and completeness of shift report after using SBAR model was significantly higher than that of the before. (t = -4.414, p = 0.000). When comparing mean score of each sub-scale—Situation, Background, Assessment, Recommendation, the results of all sub-scales also demonstrated significantly higher scores of shift report using SBAR model than those of the before (p=0.000). In conclusion, change-of-shift report through SBAR model results in sending more accurate and complete information of patients than usual change-of-shift report.</p> แสงจันทร์ หนองนา, นิลเนตร สุดสวาท, ดวงสุดา วัฒนธัญญการ, มะลิสา นามมะ, อิฎฐาพร คำกุ้ม, พัชรา เตโช ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-nd/4.0 https://rsujournals.rsu.ac.th/index.php/ajnh/article/view/1466 Fri, 24 Apr 2020 13:27:03 SE Asia Daylight Time Effects of Using Extubation Practice Guideline on Extubation Successful Rate and Nurses’ Satisfaction with Using the Guideline https://rsujournals.rsu.ac.th/index.php/ajnh/article/view/1564 <p>The aim of this intervention research was to investigate the outcomes of using extubation practice guideline in intensive care unit<strong>. </strong>A purposive sample of 509 patients with ventilator via ET tube, and 29 professional nurses were recruited for this study.
